Air Max Day 2018

Well, the highly anticipated Air Max Day 2018 has come and gone, and I have to admit that I’m a little sad (actually, a lot sad…like full-blown depressed) because I wasn’t able to score a pair of the 1/97 SW that I have LITERALLY been waiting a whole year for, ever since the Sneakeasy event last

Teddy Love by Oak + Fort

First, the bad news.  It’s still winter here in NYC and there are no signs of the weather getting warmer anytime soon.  The good news, however, is that I’m able to continue on with my sick obsession with all things teddy this season!  This teddy maxi coat from Oak + Fort has quickly become a closet staple for me;

TGIF: A Series of Friday Moods

Wellll, technically this is a #FBF post as I took these photos last Friday night.  But today is also Friday so…still relevant!  I recently just picked up a Canon G7 X Mark II so I spent my Friday night playing around and trying to get familiarized with it.  Here’s a series of Friday moods featuring

SWB x OPTION A

Guess who’s baaaack? Ugh, I know…I’ve been the world’s worst blogger.  But you know, sometimes life gets in the way and between family, my other jobs and my photographer’s own busy schedule, it’s been rather tough to coordinate and find time to shoot.  Adulting really blows sometimes.  Mark my words though, I will definitely be

“OFF CAMPUS” by Virgil Abloh

Last Friday, I trekked down to Wall Street to check out “OFF CAMPUS” – an installation by Virgil Abloh, showcasing his most epic collaboration with Nike yet.  The collab, appropriately titled “The Ten”, features ten of Nike’s most iconic sneakers deconstructed and remixed by the talented Off-White designer. Upon walking in, the first thing I noticed was

Kith me…I’m back!

Sooo I know that it’s been almost three weeks since this much anticipated Kith x Coca Cola collab was released, but that’s also pretty much the same amount of time that I’ve been laptop-less.  My beloved MacBook Pro that I’ve had since 2011 decided to finally take an L after running on back-in-the-day-AOL-dial-up speeds for

Iro-ochi: Just in time for Summer

You guys remember the sick bombers from Iro-ochi Premium Denim that I featured here on SWB awhile back?  Well, Iro-ochi is back with their Summer ’17 collection, and trust me when I say…it does not disappoint.  The collection includes baseball jerseys and long distressed tees, and in true Iro-ochi fashion, they did not play it

My L.A. Diary

If I’m being honest, my #1 dilemma whenever I travel is what sneakers I’m going to take with me.  It legit stresses me out.  My friend laughed at me when I told her that my carry-on was just all sneakers.  Six pairs is not a lot for two weeks, is it???  I would’ve taken two,

Yeezys: My First & Last

Those who know me know that I’ve been collecting sneakers for quite some time now, which is why I never find it surprising when someone asks me why I don’t own a single pair of Yeezys (and believe me, I get asked this question more often times than not).  And my answer to them is

Leather Weather

One of the most timeless wardrobe essentials every woman (and man!) should have in their closet is a black leather moto.  I’m so glad that it’s finally warm enough in NYC for me to wear my absolute favorite jacket by Laer Brand. When I was first shopping for a black moto, I knew that I wanted

No clouds in my storms…

Ahhh, NYC.  The only city where you can experience all four seasons in a single week.  It’s been rainy, windy and bitter cold here in NYC these past couple days.  But just less than 24 hours before the wetness, there was not a single cloud in the sky and the air was crisp, clean and cool,

It’s finally spring…

…or so I thought.  It definitely was on this day at least.  60 degrees.  Sunny with a cool breeze…it reminded me of beach weather.  I imagined being back home in LA strolling down the Venice Beach Boardwalk with a fresh poke bowl in hand.  Ahhh pure bliss. Aaaand then the 25 degree windchill the very next

Supreme Undercover Babe

If you’ve read my previous posts, you’ll know that I love me a good reversible jacket.  Needless to say, this MA-1 bomber is my favorite piece from the 2nd Supreme x Undercover collab. If you didn’t know already, the text on the reverse side reads “GENERATION F*CK YOU” backwards, but I chose not to display that side

Iro-ochi Premium Denim: Bomb Squad

“I hate reversible jackets!” -no one ever. Who doesn’t love a good reversible jacket?  Iro-ochi Premium Denim nailed it with this bomber, the Sakura Jacket, with high quality satin and ruching details on the sleeves and down the center of the back panel on one side and camouflage print with splashes of floral embroidery on the other.

Kasina Royale

I never got to gush about one of my favorite collabs that came out last August: Kasina x Adidas.  I love the minimalistic approach that Kasina took in altering little details without compromising the look of the Original Superstar 80 silhouette. Three single stitches replace Adidas’ signature three stripes, and the small red hardware accents give

Meet Streetwear Barbie

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here: the launch of my blog!  Those of you who know me know that I’ve been working on this for quite some time now so I could not be more thrilled that SWB is finally LIVE!  And for those of you who don’t know me, here
